1 large yellow onion peeled, grated (through a cheese grater)

2 tbsp butter

2/3 cup milk

4 slices of bread, crusts removed, bread cut into pieces

2 eggs

2 lbs. ground beef

2 tsp. sea salt

2 tsp. black pepper

Sauce Ingredients:

6 tbs. butter

1/3 cup flour

1 quart beef stock

 3/4 cup sour cream

1 tsp. sea salt


1. Sauté the grated onion in 2 tbs. of butter, over a medium-high heat, until the onions soften and turn translucent. (about 3-4 minutes) Remove from heat and let cool. 

2. In a bowl, mix the bread pieces with the milk. Set aside for 20 minutes, or until the bread soaks up all the milk. When it does, chop the bread in a food processor and put it into a large bowl.

3. Add the onions to the bowl of milk and bread. Add the eggs, ground beef, sea salt and pepper. Using your (clean) hands, mix well for about 2 minutes until the ingredients are well combined. 

4. Use a tablespoon to measure out the meat for the meatballs. As you form the meatballs, put on a greased ( a little butter) baking sheet pan. You should get about 30 meatballs.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

5.  Bake in oven for 18 minutes and then remove.

6. In a large skillet, put  6 tbs. butter, flour, beef stock, sour cream, and sea salt. Whisk in skillet. When it starts to boil, add meatballs. 

7. Cook at a medium heat for about 10 minutes and serve.

Serve hot.
